In this series of Love, Haley, senior Haley ward reviews a rom com each day leading up to Valentine’s day. For day one, she reviews a classic rom com: When Harry Met Sally.

If you’re ever with a girl that’s too good for you, marry her”

Valentine’s Day, released in 2010, shares more than a dozen people experiencing Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year. We all know Valentine’s day as the ‘day of love’, and this rom com takes a look at many different couples on this day filled with expectations. There are so many headline actors and actresses such as: Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Shirley MacLaine, Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, Patrick Dempsey, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Patrick Dempsey, Emma Roberts, Taylor Lautner, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Swift, and many more. 

The movie follows all of these people’s ups and downs on Valentine’s Day, watching some of their relationships thrive, and other ones fall apart. Each of the relationships somewhat intertwine in the end through certain things, but they do not all meet directly. It definitely took until quite a while into the movie before I started to piece together where some of the characters connected.

I thought this movie was really interesting, but I think a flaw about Valentine’s Day is that because of the amount of characters, it was hard to develop even one story thoroughly. Most of the stories were very bland and you could not learn a lot about the characters, which is what you would expect when you have so many storylines and only so much time. It was hard to connect to the characters when you did not see them on screen a lot.

I liked how you got to see how different everyone’s Valentine’s Day can be. No one had a ‘perfect’ day, but most of the characters had a new understanding of love and their relationships at the end of the day.

My favorite quote from the movie that I showed above was, If you’re ever with a girl that’s too good for you, marry her.” To me, this quote says that there is not a perfect time for something, and if the opportunity is present, do not waste it.

I rate this movie a four out of five hearts. I really did enjoy this movie despite all of the different storylines. The comedy side was definitely there, specifically I think Taylor Swift had a great performance as the ditzy blonde! I enjoyed seeing all of the different actors and actresses on screen, and overall I think this is a great Valentine’s Day watch if you want to see all different types of love stories!

Love, Haley
